Apple issues Safari security update

Version 4.0.6 fixes 16 flaws.

Apple has updated its Safari browser today with a range of security and stability patches.

Safari 4.0.5 fixes 16 security holes mainly in the Webkit rendering engine, which is also used by Google's Chrome browser.

The Windows version of Safari also includes updates for the ColorSync and ImageIO frameworks to stop attacks using maliciously crafted TIFF or BMP images.

Apple said that the update is "recommended for all Safari users".

The new software requires Macs running OS X 10.4.11, 10.5.8, or 10.6.1 or higher, or PCs running Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.
